You gotta tonemap that thing, Rob. And 'shop in a big blobby chrome covered car someplace. And then tonemap the whole thing again.
Maybe convert to b&w and leave a couple little color elements, and saturate the crap out of those.
Finally, oversharpen the whole thing until it catches fire.
Now you've got something!
(not you, Original Poster, I mean the maniac who's editing your work!)
I guess you like it, then!
All I'd add, but I'm not clever enough to do it yet, is insert Cindy Crawford in squaw costume - well, part of a squaw costume. Oh, and also a white and brown horse, of course. You'd love that even more.
Like you, I love strong composition and meaningful images.
Best wishes from Mallorca!
